About This File
This is a pack of 4 liveries of the new Niki livery based on Air Berlin Livery for the Flight Factor A320. They are intended to mimic the real planes as much as possible so if you find any issues don't hesitate to contact me. Although Air Berlin livery comes as standard the A320 this one better and made from scratch.
- all logos are made from vectors - they are as sharp as textures allow
- completely custom leading edge surfaces (wing + stabilizers)
- custom wing with the correct colour scheme and heavily edited normal maps
- custom livery appropriate wheel colours
- approporiate windshield design (either painted or silver)
- appropriate door highlight shape and "cut here in emergency" signs
- custom engine textures from Kristoffer Eriksen
- appropriate nose static port (either round or square)
- black tyres
- correct wingtip fence paint shape
Please note there's no registration on the wing as the wing uses same texture for both wings so a registration would appear reversed on one side. The NML files were kindly provided by cessnarox and modified by me. The paintkit I used was created by jettojig and I used some personal modifications (now part of the paintkit (or will get included soon)). The nose area may look a little weird but since the airplane isn't a tube but rather a rectangle and I made it with one of 2 options how paint those areas (each has positives and negatives).
This livery is not fully compatible with Matavia mod. It is only compatible with the lighting + cabin modifications. Using the NML that comes with Matavia mod may overide my custom NML (depending on how you install it) which was made specificaly for the edited textures on fuselage and wings and engines (those come from Kristoffer Eriksen). If you decide to use Matavia NML the result may look weird.
Move the Niki livery folders into the liveries folder of your FF A320.

What's New in Version 6.0 See changelog
2.0 Brought all of my liveries on the same level. With this livery it was mostly just warning red lines.
3.0 Updated the livery to work with the newly updated A320 3D model
4.0 Little edits and detail added to the fuselage. The leading edge of vertical stabilizer is silver/painted accordingly to the real livery. All normal maps are fully custom and based on cessnarox's. Completely new wings matching the colours/top part "effect" of the real livery and they are without the silver leading edge and the ailerons, spoilers, flaps and leading edges are much less matte than with default normal maps.
5.0 All leading edges have correct shapes (stabilizers + wings), door outlines match the real world counterpart. Redone and edited engine and fuselage normal maps. Added apropriate wheel colour.
6.0 Remade paint shape on wingtip fences. Made entire tyres black.
